What kind of meat is pepperoni?

Answer

Pepperoni is a hard, highly seasoned beef and pork sausage. It may also be made with turkey. Pepperoni is cured, which means it does not need to be cooked prior to consumption.

Pepperoni is most often sliced and used as a pizza topping. It may also be used on sandwiches or as a snack. Homemade pepperoni can be made using pork butt, lean beef chuck, salt, sugar, cayenne pepper, sweet paprika, anise, garlic, dry red wine, ascorbic acid and sodium nitrate. The meat is ground and mixed with the remaining ingredients and cured in the refrigerator overnight. It is then stuffed in casings and hung to dry for six to eight weeks.
